Best Caster-Class Servants in Fate/Grand Order


The Top Ten

1 Merlin Merlin

I feel like I've robbed Merlin of his much-deserved top spot in the top 3 along with Waver and Medea. So I'm going to make it up to him by placing him higher on this list and explaining why he's such a grandly exceptional Caster. Basically, he's Waver Turned Up To Eleven when it comes to being the support for your party. His first skill adds 20% NP charge and a 20% increase in Attack for your team, his second skill grants invincibility to your entire party along with increasing your party's star generation rates and decreasing your enemies' chances of delivering critical attacks with a moderate cooldown, and his third skill gives your team 50% Buster up, 3000 Max HP increase and a 100% Critical Damage bonus for three turns. In addition, one of his passive skills include being able to generate 5% NP per turn and at NP1 for Garden of Avalon, he provides 1000 healing, 5% NP charge and 5 critical stars to the party per turn for five turns. With all the statistics of what is actually a ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

2 Zhuge Liang (Lord El-Melloi II) Zhuge Liang (Lord El-Melloi II)

Need all the buffs your team can get and all the debuffs your enemies can get? Look no further than this 5-star Caster-class Servant, aka Waver Velvet. And since his NP gain is pretty efficient in terms of Skills (not only for himself, but the entire team), you can rack up enough charged-up Noble Phantasm attacks for the final battle of a quest. Especially his OP debuffing Noble Phantasm Formation of No Return. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

3 Tamamo no Mae Tamamo no Mae

MIKON! So since Tamamo no Mae (or Casko, as Nero refers to her as) is coming out next week for the US Halloween campaign, let's take a good luck at what makes her a fearsome Servant (and waifu). Naturally, as a Caster, her card set is Arts-based, so not only is it easy to build up NP charge, but she's especially vital if you use an Arts-based party of Servants (ex. Tamamo no Mae, Zhuge Liang, and Vlad III). Her skill set is not too bad, as she can drain an enemy's NP gauge by 1 bar, increase her own defense for 3 turns and also increase her defense by 30% for 1 turn only, and increase 1 ally's Arts card performance for 3 turns (and heal ally's HP post-interlude). Now probably what makes her stand out the most is her Noble Phantasm. Using her Noble Phantasm, she can help refill all allies' HP gauges AND reduce all allies' skill cooldowns by 1 turn. It may not sound like much, but considering it's easy to spam her Noble Phantasm, you can make pretty good use of using skills on a more ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

4 Medea Medea

Only three words can describe her Noble Phantasm Rule Breaker: SPAM! SPAM! SPAM! She may not deal the most damage when it comes to a Caster-class Servant, but if you expertly use her NP gain to your advantage, you can remove enemy buffs without a hitch in nigh-rapid succession! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 Gilgamesh (Caster) Gilgamesh (Caster)
6 Illyasviel von Einzbern Illyasviel von Einzbern Illyasviel von Einzbern is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. She is also the main protagonist of an alternate universe spin-off of the Fate/stay night visual novel by Type-Moon called Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya.

Her NP is hits hard on top of being able t o charge her gauge quick thanks to her AAAQB deck but that means she isn't able to buster brave chain however that really isn't a problem thanks to her first skill which gives buster up, her second skill gives her invincibility and boosts survival while her third skill makes good support as it heals and gives buffs and debugging immunity

7 Cu Chulainn (Caster) Cu Chulainn (Caster)

Best man.

8 Mephistopheles Mephistopheles
9 Leonardo Da Vinci Leonardo Da Vinci

10 Hans Christian Andersen Hans Christian Andersen

Although not having much damage capability compared to El Melloi or Helena, Anderson's Noble Phantasm offers the team offers a 20-40% offensive/defensive buff and a 1000-3000 (per turn) heal. With good NP generation per hit and his Rapid Casting skill, Hans is able to spam his NP fairly quickly. Due to his deck and skillset, Hans will usually find himself in teams that are built around a crit dealer or teams that have servants sporting triple arts decks. Although you won't be using Anderson to deal damage, he allows his teammates to do so through his immense utility. His low rarity means that his party cost is relatively low (giving more headroom for better servants/CEs) and an NP5 Hans is easily attainable compared to higher rated servants. Hans is definitely a must have servant for those looking for a cheap Waver/Helena alternative especially for NA players and newcomers since he offers such a wide array of tools in his set.

You know, I think I've been too generous with this Servant's spot on the list. His skills barely serve any vital use to him as a Caster and he can't compete with other well-regarded low-rarity Casters like Medea and Hans Christian Andersen. Sorry, Gilles, but I got to take you down a notch. A LONG notch, to be exact. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
